What to expect from your cake smash

One year old is an important milestone, a very proud moment. A photo session to mark this occasion is a really valuable investment and while I refer to these sessions as ‘Cake Smash’ photo shoots, please be assured that I make sure I capture beautiful portraits of your child without cake on his/her face too!

DECIDE YOUR THEME – have a look on the internet, Pinterest is great. Feel free to send me some examples of what you really like, and I’ll have a think about how I can make it happen. Do you have an outfit to go with this particular theme? Or do you need to pick up something new? Do you want bunting to go with it? Flowers? Balloons? It’s important that we plan this together as I have a great deal of resources already available in the studio. Together we’ll agree who’s supplying what, so we’re both clear on what the session will look like. This should be done a few weeks before – at least!

CHOOSING YOUR CAKE – your cake doesn’t have to cost a fortune! It’s a great idea to approach a professional cake maker, but if that’s not in your budget, have a browse in the supermarkets. You can get a great cake for a tenner and together we can customise it!

I allow one hour for the session, although tend to move quite fast through it. There is a lot of exciting things going on during the photoshoot and little ones can become very tired!

For a small extra charge (just to account for my time spenting designing!), I can make the following for you –

Have a think about what really sums up your son or daughter. It looks so sweet when incorporated into the session –
